2017 SWEMA Spring Meeting/Conference

 

It’s that time of year again to make plans to attend the 2017 Southwest Electrical Metering Association Spring Meeting to be held June 5th - June 8th, 2017 in Austin, Texas – the live music capital of the world- is the backdrop for this year’s meeting.  Just minutes from the 6th Street entertainment district, several popular BBQ joints, the Congress Avenue bat watches, Texas State Capital, and some very unique trailer eatery menus, Hilton Austin Airport will play host to the SWEMA 2017 Spring Meeting.

 

While the main objective of the SWEMA Spring Meeting is to foster our mutual interest of the art and science of Electricity Metering, it’s also about visiting with old acquaintances and making new ones, too!  You’ll have ample opportunity to do just this as we’ve planned several fun social events.  The fun fest begins with the 28th annual “Tom & Jerry Golf Tournament” on the morning of Monday, June 5th  followed up by a Monday evening reception hosted by the SWEMA vendor members.  Then, on Tuesday join us for a Mardi Gras themed dinner at the Hilton Airport Ballroom. We’ll have great food from the Big Easy and free flowing drinks to celebrate SWEMA and spend time enjoying the company of our fellow utility personnel.

  

On Wednesday, there will be an opportunity to experience the music night-life that the 6th Street entertainment district has to offer
